Combined effects of temperature, irradiance and salinity on growth of diatom Skeletonema costatum



Combined effects of temperature, irradiance and salinity on growth of diatom Skeletonema costatum



Chinese Journal of Oceanology and Limnology 20(3): 237-243



3-factor experiment was used to study the combined effects of temperature, irradiance and salinity on the growth of an HAB species diatom Skeletonema costatum (Grev.) Cleve. The results showed that temperature (12, 19, 25, 32degreeC), irradiance ((0.02, 0.08, 0.3, 1.6)X1016 quanta/(scntdotcm2)) and salinity (10, 18, 25, 30, 35) significantly influenced the growth of this species. There were interactive effects between any two of and among all three physical factors on the growth. In the experiment, the most optimal growth condition for S. costatum was temparature of 25degreeC, salinity of 18-35 and irradiance of 1.6X1016 quanta/(scntdotcm2). The results indicated S. costatum could divide at higher rate and were more likely to bloom under high temperature and high illumination from spring to fall. It was able to distribute widely in ocean and estuary due to its adaptation to a wide range of salinities.
